Scor-Pal Challenge #73

Hi everyone, it's a new month and the challenge on the Scor-Pal blog is to create anything, just be sure it includes more than one score.  

I chose to create some new gift card holders.  I honestly don't like giving a gift card because I feel I haven't actually bought that person something.  But I have found that if I dress up the gift card, I actually feel better about giving the gift card. 

These are really simply and easy to create, and if you use a sturdy double sided cardstock, it's already decorated!

Start by cutting cardstock 5" x 9 3/4".
With the long side at the top edge of the Scor-Pal, score at 1 3/4", 4 1/2", 5 3/4" and 7".

Fold on the first and last scored lines, then create the mountain fold with the middle scored lines.  Use your Scor-tool to burnish the fold lines.

Turn the piece over and add Scor-Tape along the middle section, being sure to add Scor-Tape to what will be the bottom of the holder.  The Stacker is perfect for this as it holds your tape while you  have both hands free to place the tape.

Since you can create 2 gift card holders from 1 sheet of 12" x 12" cardstock, I created a second one using the reverse side of the paper.

Once the middle section is adhered together along the bottom edge, use an oval punch on the top edge to punch a half oval.  In order to allow the gift card to fit, carefully cut along the fold to within 1/2" of both edges.  Your gift card will now slip in easily.

Die cut Happy Birthday from white cardstock, adhere to die cut circles, and place on the bottom flap.  Place gift cards in the holder.

Wrap the gift card holders with ribbon.

Finish by stamping a birthday phrase from Joy Clair's Out of this World stamp set on an oval, then tie it to the ribbon.

Please stop by the blog to see what the designers have created for you this month.

Thanks for stopping by.
